After placing a new focus on eco-friendly packaging, UK-based pasta company Burro e Salvia decided to seek a new design from packaging specialist Biopac. The result? A sustainable solution that’s good for the consumer and the environment.
“We make pasta for our customers to buy and take home,” said Burro e Salvia founder Gaia Enria. “We needed a solution that would be stylish and functional at the same time, and strong enough to protect our handmade pasta during a long commute home.”
The pasta is now being packaged in high-quality corrugated board made of pure pulp wood. The wood itself comes from sustainable forests in Europe and the packaging can be fully composted.
Biopac technical director Mark Brigden says the partnership was well-suited for Biopac, which specializes in eco-friendly packaging.
“We enjoy working with artisan food producers like Gaia and translating their requirements into a bespoke packaging solution that is stylish, functional and sustainable. We needed to use a high quality board to make maximum use of Gaia’s branding so this could be well defined on the box,” he said.
